Seven episodes, each taking place on a different day of the week, on the theme of suicide and violent death.
A movie about suicide! Actually it's seven movies about suicide. We get to follow Buttgereit in to his strange world of death, it's not a fun trip, but I can guarantee you that it's not meant to be an enjoyable film. The film is divided into different short stories, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday... If you haven't seen any of Buttgereits earlier movies this one can be pretty hard to sit through cause it is pretty bizarre although not as graphic as his other movies, Nekromantik, Schramm. Needless to say; I love it, I love Buttgereit for making death into the blackness that it's doomed to be, he's not joking around. Another thing that needs to be praised is the soundtrack; beautiful. Buy this film, then buy his other movies.
I don't know what the reviewers on IMDB were smoking! IMHO this film sucks, and not in a good way. If you want to know how a human corpse decomposes, I suppose this is the film to watch.
The version I watched is 1 hr 12 min 19 sec. There is a short segment with a little girl; nothing interesting. The most interesting shots were stills shown as part of the credits at the end.
